Exploring the Wind

March is a great time to study the weather.  Within the past week, we have seen rain, fog and sun.  Saturday was a VERY windy day here and a great opportunity to learn about the wind.

What your young child needs to know:  Wind is caused from warm air rising and cold air coming in to take its place.

We took some bubbles to our front porch and took turns blowing them to see the direction of the wind.  Because of the wall beside us, we could see the wind swirl around where we were sitting and blow around the wall.

Enjoy and thanks for your comments!
